Economics is the study of choice and decision making in a world with limited resources. It examines how societies allocate scarce resources to meet the needs and wants of their citizens.
You will investigate both micro and macro-economic topics during the two years. Micro topics include how markets work, why markets fail, market structures and labour markets.
Macro topics will cover aggregative supply and demand, fiscal and monetary police, financial markets and international trade and globalisation. All students will complete three exams at the end of their two-year study programme.
Many students go on to study economics at university as it is a highly regarded degree choice and provides opportunities for careers within government, banking, accountancy, management and investment.
